Gaga: “There may be a surprise duet with someone that is also performing.”
Lady Gaga will be performing tomorrow at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. Speaking today to Ryan Seacrest, Gaga said that her scheduled 45-minute set may be extended. She also hinted a surprise duet, lending credence to the rumor we heard that Gaga may be performing along side Sting at some point during the show.
You can hear the entire interview below. The performance will be streamed online at www.iHeart.com as it occurs.

Lady Gaga’s latest ‘Yoü and I’ fashion film shines a spotlight on the enigmatic Yüyi the Mermaid.
Did Yüyi direct the music video?
Lady Gaga has done it again! The third fashion film in the series, ‘HAUS OF Ü ft. Yüyi’ stars none other than the magical being that is Yüyi the Mermaid. In an interesting twist, this clip takes a behind-the-scenes approach and shows Yüyi being carried from her trailer to the set of the music video. She is also seen sitting in what appears to be a director’s chair.
What does it all mean? Perhaps we’ll find out when the next two films are released. We can’t wait!
Lady Gaga shows off her skills as a jazz musician, fashion revolutionary, and hot dog enthusiast.
Welcome back to The Week in Gaga, our weekly recap of the most relevant and interesting Lady Gaga news of the past seven days. We don’t have nearly as much to cover this week as we did the last, but the handful of things we have to report are fairly significant.
Overall, it was another eventful week for Gaga. Read on for the full scoop.
Lady Gaga’s latest single ‘Yoü and I’ has been given the remix treatment by talented artists and groups such as Metronomy, Mark Taylor, Wild Beasts, and ATB. The seven-track ‘Yoü and I’ remix album has just been released on iTunes and Amazon for only $5.99.
This is an eclectic set of remixes. The Metronomy remix has a very modern, minimalist vibe to it. The lyrics are mostly intact but the song is otherwise quite different. The Wild Beasts remix is a hypnotic electro-piano hybrid that rearranges Gaga’s lyrics into entirely new phrases.
Our favorite remix comes from Grammy Award-winning record producer Mark Taylor. He changes ‘Yoü and I’ just enough to make the remix feel distinct from the original, while retaining most of its structure and tone. If you’ve been itching for a more electronic, Edge of Glory-esque version of ‘Yoü and I,’ this is the remix for you.
Purchase your digital copy of the ‘Yoü and I’ remix today and keep your eyes peeled for the remix cd coming to stores soon!
Lady Gaga has been nominated for six MTV European Music Awards, more than any other artist this year.
Gaga’s nominations include Best Female, Best Pop, Biggest Fans, Best Live, as well as Best Song and Best Video for ‘Born This Way.’ All categories are open to voting, with the exception of Best Video, which will be selected by an MTV panel.
Voting is open until November 4th and the awards ceremony will be broadcast live from Belfast on November 6th. Head over to the official EMAs voting site to cast your votes and be sure to tell all your friends!
Gaga was the top winner of the 2010 EMAs, earning three awards. See her acceptance speech for Best Pop below.
Lady Gaga is a tramp in her new duet with Tony Bennett.
‘The Lady is a Tramp,’ the opening track on Bennett’s upcoming Duets II album, was released on YouTube today, and early reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Here’s a small sampling of the praise Gaga and Bennett are receiving.
Idolator’s Becky Bain gave Gaga great praise, writing, “We all know Gaga has no problem belting out a show-stopping number, but damn if we aren’t surprised just how effortless the pop star sounds crooning this classic showtune.”
Amanda Dobbins, writing for New York Magazine’s Vulture, was also pleasantly surprised. “[The] Lady has the sassy, slightly show-tune-y voice down cold. It works! Unless Gaga decides to pay tribute to Disney’s Lady and the Tramp with the costuming (we fear dog suits), this collaboration can go in the “success” column.”
Even Gawker’s Brian Moylan, who has had a long history of being not-so-kind to Gaga had to admit, “It’s really good!”
‘The Lady is a Tramp’ will be available for purchase on Tuesday (along with Bennett’s full Duets II album), but in the meantime you can enjoy the song by listening to the stream below.
Lady Gaga is scheduled to perform for a concert at the Hollywood Bowl on October 15th honoring the 10th anniversary of Bill Clinton’s William J. Clinton Foundation. Yahoo! has partnered with the foundation for the event, and will be live streaming the concert. Other artists set to perform include Bono, The Edge, and Usher. More artists will be added to the lineup in the coming days.

Lady Gaga released her second fashion film for ‘Yoü and I’ this afternoon entitled, ‘HAUS OF Ü ft. BRIDE.’
The video is shot in a similar style to the ‘Nymph’ video (which you can see here), but it’s has a fair bit more going on. Unlike the first video, this one features several people including Gaga, her love interest/captor from the video, the video’s ice cream truck owner, Nicola Formichetti (we think), and a handful of little monsters.
Gaga never forgets her little monsters!
Based on the title, you may be expecting to see more of Gaga in her white wedding dress from the video. However, Gaga never does the expected. Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think!
